Raina, who featured for India in South Africa after 12 months of exile, compiled 89 runs across three-T20Is. Speaking in the press-conference, Raina said: "Just a matter of a couple of games there, I can assure you that I am going to be there very soon," promised Raina at the post-match press conference. "I worked really hard for two years. Each and every session, I was doing in the gym, on the field, I was just (thinking) when I am going to play for India again. I think God helped. Thanks to my wife, my kid to make me believe I can go there and wear the jersey again. That's what I think the Indian team does. When you make a lot of sacrifices in your life and at the same time you enjoy your game, (it works out). I worked really hard on my game and my mental toughness." <p></p> <p></p>Raina was awarded Man of the Match for his all-round show in the final T20I, scoring 43 runs and picking 1 wicket. Raina also spoke about securing a place in the Indian side for the upcoming World Cup in 2019. <p></p> <p></p>He said: It is very important for me. From here we play in Sri Lanka and then we have IPL also coming up. And I was part of the World Cup before. I won the WC in 2011 and played first World Cup that I played, I've got the trophy in my house, that's an unbelievable feeling. Coming back to One-Day spot, I think I've done well at No. 5." <p></p> <p></p>Raina also praised <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/virat-kohli">Virat Kohli</a> for his leadership skills in South Africa. He said: I think when India wins, everything looks nice. The way Virat led the team in the last two months, I think it showed he cares for each and every person. Batting at 3, he was brilliant in 20-20, and gave me the license to go after all the bowlers. I think that showed faith in me.
